    Experienced Mechanic Calgary

    Don't accept anything less.

    We specialize in manual vehicles and have been in the industry for over 25 years. Since vehicles were only air-cooled, our mechanics have diagnosed, repaired, and replaced clutches. We know how to quickly and accurately diagnose clutch problems, so you only need to repair the specific issue.

    You might be surprised to learn that clutches aren't only found in manual vehicles. They are also used in many automatic transmissions.

    A manual clutch is always dry, whereas an automatic clutch pack is always covered in transmission fluid. Both are subject to wear and tear, and you’ll notice when your clutch begins to fail.

    A slipping clutch cannot be reversed, but it can be replaced at Car Salon Tirecraft.

    Bring your vehicle in today if you’re experiencing the first signs of a damaged clutch. Immediate servicing can significantly reduce slippage.
